Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie originally formed in Bellingham, WA, in 1997 with their casette-only Elsinor Records release, You Can Play These Songs With Chords (later expanded and reissued by Barsuk in 2002). The group, which appropriated its name from a song title by '60s UK rock ensemble The Bonzo Dog Band, has consistently released outstanding albums over the years, gaining a wider audience and seeping into the consciousness of mainstream America with the success of their latest albums, the most recent of which were released by Atlantic Records. The band remains a core member of the Barsuk family, however, and we continue to release their albums on vinyl, including the reissues of their first four albums on 180-gram vinyl, as well as 2015's Kintsugi and 2018's Thank You For Today. In addition to the Ben Gibbard lo-fi solo project All-Time Quarterback CD reissue from a few years back, and Ben's more recent Former Lives album, we also released the Chris Walla solo project, Field Manual, and the Steve Fisk & Benjamin Gibbard score to the film Kurt Cobain About A Son.

Death Cab for Cutie's The Photo Album Deluxe Edition

We're very excited to announce the 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Death Cab for Cutie's The Photo Album, beautifully remastered by João Carvalho, cut for vinyl by Joe Nino-Hernes at Sterling Sound, and pressed at RTI on 180-gram clear vinyl. This limited-edition gatefold package also includes a bonus 12" EP with a new 33rpm Carvalho/Nino-Hernes master of The Stability E.P., and a 12-page booklet and separate insert containing — for the first time in full size — all the photos from the original 1st pressing 2001 double-CD artwork. Vinyl is in production, expected to ship in early Spring 2022!

The deluxe digital version, with all 35 tracks, is available starting October 29 on Bandcamp and all digital services, and includes previously-unavailable b-sides and compilation tracks, band demos, acoustic radio sessions, alternate lyrics, and never-before-heard studio outtakes from the era. You can find one of the tracks, "Coney Island (Band Demo)", here. 13 Oct 2021
